Grilled Mozzarella Cheese Sandwich w/pesto & tomato

Grilled Mozzarella Cheese Sandwich with pesto and tomato  

Since I started making grilled cheese this way, I haven't gone back to the same old grilled cheese. It's simple and fast and good!

Grilled Mozzarella Cheese Sandwich with pesto and tomato


Olive oil
Butter (or soft margarine)
Sourdough bread (sliced)
Basil pesto (I used store-bought in a jar)
Mozzarella cheese ball (thinly sliced)
Tomatoes (thinly sliced)


In a medium skillet heat up about 1 tablespoon of oil mixed with a little bit of butter on medium high heat.

For each sandwich that you make, butter one side of  two slices of bread with butter or margarine and on the opposite side of bread spread a generous amount of pesto.  When skillet is hot, place one slice of bread butter side down.  Place 2-3 slices of mozzarella on top of the pesto side, then add 1-2 slices of tomatoes.  Place the second slice of bread pesto side down.  Cook bottom of sandwich until the bread is golden brown and then flip to brown the other side.  Yumyum!
